FC Zenit Saint Petersburg vs PFC CSKA Moscow Prediction 26 August 2021

Tournament: Russian Premier League
Location: Krestovsky Stadium
Match date: 08/26/2021 at 17:45

The sixth matchday of the RPL will be remembered for the principled encounter between the multiple champions of the country, Zenit and CSKA.

Zenit began the current campaign with three victories in a row over Khimki (3:1), Rostov (4:2) and Krasnodar (3:2). And then the Saint Petersburg team in turn failed to beat Lokomotiv (1:1) and Ufa (1:1). Now they occupy a worthy second line of the standings, having 11 points in their asset with goal statistics of 12:7.

In a similar period of time, CSKA achieved success over Ufa (1:0), Rostov (3:1) and Akhmat (2:0), losing 1:2 to Lokomotiv and 1:2 to Dynamo Moscow. Thus, CSKA are sixth, gaining nine points, complemented by a goal difference of 8:5. Which clearly does not correspond to their high ambitions.

In recent years, Zenit have been playing well against CSKA both at home and away. As for us, on Thursday the hosts have excellent chances to prove their class advantage.
